Despite the title, if you read what's being allegedly said/done: They are doing more than just watching your camera.
They have root
access (God mode).
They can access any data on the phone. Send/Receive any data as well (impersonating you).
To quote the link:
They claim to have 'complete root access' allowing them to install malicious software that could monitor its cameras and microphones
If you've ever sent your personal details to another person (phone number, name, e-mail address, etc): Then said 'hacker' would potentially have open access to it.
In shorter words: "DOX" or "Documentation" of you. Playing the regular Sherlock Holmes of another person is an easy way to get a SSN.
